"What Jesus teaches us first of all is to meet each other, and in meeting to offer each other help. We must know how to meet each other. We must build, create, and construct a culture of encounter". These are the words pronounced by Pope Francis in the video message for the feast of San Gaetano, in Argentina, released on 7 August 2013.
"It is what Jesus teaches us: to meet the needs of the most underprivileged. Just as Jesus did, always meeting people’s needs; he went to meet them. When you encounter someone who is needier, your heart begins to grow, to grow larger and larger! Because the encounter expands its capacity for loving. The encounter with the other expands the heart”.
